Sexy photo probed

For those interested in remotely displaying a photo on one of parliament's LG TV screens, Samsung products like the Galaxy Note and the Galaxy Tab seem to work best.

That was the initial finding of a technical investigation yesterday carried out to find out how a pornographic photo of an Asian woman appeared on a screen in the House chamber during the charter amendment debate last Wednesday

The technical team made up of experts from CAT Telecom and parliament IT officials checked smartphones and tablets of various brands, including iPhones, Samsung Galaxy Notes, Samsung Galaxy Tabs and iPads. Parliament audio-visual staff smartphones and mobile phones were also checked.

Initial results of the one-hour probe showed that no House employees' mobile phones or communication devices could have sent photo files to the plasma screen displays in the House chamber, said a source.

The probe found iPads and iPhones could not directly send the transmissions of pictures to the screen even though the devices had the LGTV Remote application, a Wi-Fi remote controller. The iPads and iPhones would have asked for a password before sending a picture in that manner, said the source.

Samsung Galaxy Notes and Samsung Galaxy Tabs, however, would have been capable of sending signal transmissions to the plasma screen by using an "all share" programme installed on the devices without the need for a password. The transmission of pictures takes about five seconds, said the source.

Unfortunately, the phone numbers of the senders could not be checked as the files were sent via a Wi-Fi system, said the source.
